They have been selling out like crazy around here.  I bought Vader just to see.  Its ok but 2 AT-AT drivers would have been better.

Just an observation after visiting Wal-Mart this past weekend....I don't know if this is the case everywhere or not, but our local store has just gobs of the Transformers now.  The pegs in the "regular" aisle are full, an endcap is full, and the "spillover/bonus" aisle they have has a big section full of them too.  I think they are all from the first wave, although I didn't look through them.  I don't know how they're selling otherwise, but our WM now has gobs of them to get rid of.  No basic figures on the pegs, but plenty of Transformers and Choppers :P.

That's seems to be every store I see as well. There are alot of the Unleashed Battle Packs too. I can't find the regular figs anywhere...

Around here the transformers are still selling well.  The Unleashed battle packs are clogging the pegs and shelves everywhere though.  I have no idea how many sets have been out already but TRU had 5 different ones and so did Target (or what looked like 5 different ones).

$2.50???  What part of the country do you live in??  I'm a pretty hard core TF collector and I've yet to purchase one because of the $15 price point.

SE Va.  The lady said they just wanted to clear them out.  Who am I to argue?

Saw the Millenium Falcon set today at Walamrt.  It was priced at $34.88.

Same thing at one of our WMs today as well.  Passed on it though, as I'm not biting on this line one bit (shut up, Jay!).

Was in my local TRU today in London England, and the Millenium Falcon was there.  Only problem was the £29.99 price.  I may just have to wait till the next time I pop over to the states.

Plus there was about 20 Boba Fett's on the racks.

I saw the ARC-170 in spacewhale deco and Darth Vader's Sith Starfighter today.  These might be repaints, but they looked really good!

I'm so sick of these damned things clogging the pegs and shelves in every store I step into these days.  I saw at least 25+ SW Transformer cases on pallettes at two of our WMs last week, so these things are gonna be around forever, probably.

I finally saw the Falcon set with the two 3" Titanium gold ships in it the other day at WM as well.  Took forever for that thing to come out.  Anyone recall if that's an exclusive, or if it's gonna be a wide release?  Now I've just got to figure out a way to get the ships without the dumb Falcon.  Ugh.

Definitely one line that I never bought in to.

This is truly a kids line ! I get my son all of them. It's great for him and brings him into the collection world.

The WM falcon is exlcusive to WM only with the gold titaniums.

I picked up the CW version ARC-170 last night at WM for my Lil' Brother. I'm not into these but felt the Clone Wars paint job on the tiny Clone trooper that comes with the ship was cool...right down to the 'eyes' painted on his helmet. A little too Ex Universy for my tastes but still a good paintjob on something so tiny nonetheless.
